OVERVIEW

Powerful humbucking sound in a soapbar-style pickup.

If you need a hot soapbar or a mini-humbucker replacement, look no further. Low notes are tight and punchy, high notes are strong and defined, and mids are clean and open. The neck model has almost as much power as the bridge model with a leaner bass response. It comes with 4-conductor cable for coil-splitting and parallel options. Makes a nasty bridge position pickup, too!

FEATURES
  • Soapbar style
  • Humbucking tone
  • Includes 4-conductor cable
  • Recommended for bridge position

Power, tone, and versatility - just a click or a call away - DO IT TODAY!

      New to DiMarzio and very impressed

      Comments about DiMarzio DP162 Deluxe Plus Soapbar Pickup:

      I bought this along with DP209 P-90 Super Distortion and put them into my Gibson Les Paul Deluxe. High output neck humbucker that is P-90 sized. Clarity and warmth, lots of sustain. It sings with punch. It's not as liquidy as a PAF though. I notice natural compression with ceramic pickups especially on the clean channel. Still deciding on pickup and pole piece height. There is a very slight P-90 honk to this humbucker.

        Comments about DiMarzio DP162 Deluxe Plus Soapbar Pickup:

        My experience with humbuckers is limited, but this is one of the clearest neck humbucker I've heard. Strum a chord and you'll hear every single note. It also splits well - even clearer but less output. It matched a Super Distortion at bridge.

        Packaging deserves a bravo. More than what you need is included (spare screws, padding, springs).

        This pick up rocks my Gibson SG

        By Classic Rocker

        from Rogers, AR

        Comments about DiMarzio DP162 Deluxe Plus Soapbar Pickup:

        I loved the sound of the P-90 in my SG. I was having alot of trouble with buzz since I practice in a pretty small room with lots of electronic gear nearby. Although I was a little apprehensive I went ahead and ordered this pick up from my friends at MSF, slammed it into my geetar and I am not at all disappointed. It took care of the buzzing and sweetened up the sound just enough to make it sound like I wanted it to. It has as much volume and is as crispy as my ol' single coil P-90. I play blues, classic rock and country rock.I give it a 10 across the board.
